Public Private Partnerships of St Kitts and Nevis
There are numerous examples of collaboration between the Government of St Kitts and Nevis and private businesses. In the health sector, in particular, co-operation between the government and private companies has been widespread, for example private pharmacies are able to receive tax breaks on the purchase of insulin, which in turn reduces the cost for the consumer. In recent years, public–private partnerships have been brought to the forefront of government discussion, particularly with regard to stimulating economic growth in the country following the global economic downturn. In light of this, the government has developed a National Competiveness Council to institutionalise public–private partnerships under the Private Sector Development Strategy.
